At the MTV Movie Awards Sunday night (May 7), pop music royalty, Paris Jackson, wore a statement-making ripped rocker-tee celebrating former first lady Michelle Obama. The shirt featured Obama in illustrated form with the words "Michelle My Belle" written in graphic font across the front, a play on Beauty and The Beast (Emma Watson won the first-ever gender binary Best Actor award for her role as Belle) as well as the Beatles song "Michelle". Jackson's exact shirt is made by Los Angeles-based designer The Spiders From Arts, but since there currently doesn't seem to be an e-commerce shop to snag one of your own, Billboard Style picked out three politically-inclined, game-changing alternatives to the tee of the moment.

"Hope Not Fear" Tee 

Tictail, an e-commerce marketplace for emerging designers from around the world, partnered with Refinery29 to make some badass graphic tees, the proceeds of which go She Should Run, an organization helping to increase the number of women running for office. Some of our personal favorites are ones by Lola Ogbara, Isabel Castillo-Guijarro and Louisa Cannell (below).

#PINCAUSELOVE 

Run by outspoken entrepreneur Kate Lind, Pincause was started a mere four months ago on January 1, 2017 in response to Trump's election. Since then, Lind's brand new company was commissioned to create the official pin for The March for Science and has raised over $150,000 for organizations like Planned Parenthood, ACLU and International Rescue Committee. At $5 a piece, you can buy the "I Love You" pin to support women's rights, which donates $2 out of every $5 purchase to the ACLU and Planned Parenthood.

The United State of Women 

The United State of Women is a wide-reaching organization started not too long ago by two millennial women who worked for the Obama/Biden administration. Its main goal is to inspire gender equality for all women by developing a varied action network focused on a plethora of women's issues, from affordable college and equal pay to recruiting more women for public service and reforming public school disciplinary policies. To support the cause, you can donate here and get involved here, but you can also buy a dope, feminist shirt for $30 like the one Van Jones is wearing below.
